    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Upon arrival at our canoe departure location, your Brisbane city lights canoe trip begins with an equipment overview and safety brief, followed by an on shore demonstration. After all the technicalities are out of the way, we launch your canoe in anticipation of your paddle along the Brisbane River!

    Once in the water, we get everyone to have a little practice in the canoe in a safe area before we embark on our journey on the Brisbane River.

    During the canoe experience, you’ll be paddling in a two person, flat bottom, very stable canoe. The trip is designed to be a gentle and highly enjoyable paddle. In the event that we have odd numbers, one of our friendly instructors will be happy to paddle with you if required.

    The direction we take depends on the tide, but whilst paddling on the Brisbane River, the environment takes on an atmosphere of its own especially at night. On a beautiful, still night the glow on the water from all the lights transforms the river into a very peaceful and tranquil place.

    After you have been in the canoe for a few hours and worked up an appetite, we’ll return to shore and treat you to a cheese, fruit and nut platter, where you will have the opportunity to socialise with your fellow canoe companions.
